I love chocolate chip cookies and this is no secret in our house. When the kids see me get the mixer out from under the cabinet and the butter out of the fridge they know it’s go-time and we ALL get a tad giddy.
Today I suggested we make some and shortly after Tim said, “you know what I want to try? (he did not wait for an answer) I want to put some of the peanut butter M&Ms in the cookies!”
I was neither amused or excited at this proposal. I like chocolate chip cookies (sometimes with oatmeal too, I’ll admit) with JUST chocolate chips. No walnuts, no pecans, no M&Ms – chips and chips alone.
But as I was daydreaming about the cookies that would be, Tim was already loading the boys in the car to go to the nearest convenience store and buy a couple of snack-sized bags of said M&Ms.
And he did make some with them, as well as regular M&Ms, per the boys’ request.
Did I try them? Yes.
Did I like them? No, not really.
Do I stand by my chips only proclamation? I do.
So now, if you ever want to bake or send me cookies you know what kind I like!
So, what’s your pleasure? Chips only or other stuff too? I wanna know.
AND! I want you all to link up for the first ever Miss Elaine-ous Monday!!
What is Miss Elaine-ous Monday you ask?
Well, I came up with this little idea while trying to go to sleep the other night (it’s when many of my best ideas form) and decided that Monday is a great day to get you all to link up to ANY post you WANT! It could be from last week, last month, last year or just the post you wrote for your blog today.
It can be about ANYTHING you want as well! Get it? Miss Elaine-ous Monday?!
Do you have a post that meant a lot to you but wasn’t read by as many folks as you’d hoped? Or one that has great pictures and you want more people to see them? Or do you just have one that you really want to share!? And like I said, even the post you wrote today, will work just great too!
I know you all have something so please join me since this is a linky for anyone, any post and any topic! (please do keep it clean since this is a family friendly blog!)
PLUS! I’ll also choose a random post from those who link up to feature on The Miss Elaine-ous Life Facebook page (please “Like” if you have not already) so even more folks will see a new post every week!
Now go on and pick a post (that may be the hardest part) and come back here and link up!
Also, please try to visit at least a few posts around your link since the purpose of this is to find new blog friends and share each other’s posts!
Grab the button if you want to but it’s not required…
(p.s. I made it myself – my 1st button after almost 5 years of blogging – an old blogger gal CAN learn new tricks!)
If you do not post the button, I would love for you to still link back to my blog, even if you just put a little blurb at the end of you post such as “It’s Monday and I’m being “Miss Elaine-ous” over at The Miss Elaine-ous Life!” – Thanks!! Oh and extra bonus points to anyone who puts a tweet out there, that would be awesome too!
And now for the Linky!
